Sir Richard Branson’s words to open up the Creating Climate Wealth Summit challenged delegates to step up to the plate and solve our energy crisis: “This will be the most challenging and exciting opportunity of our lifetimes. Business has to step up and take responsibility for solutions.” Hosted in Sydney, Australia, July 7th and 8th in a joint partnership with Carbon War Room, co-founded by Richard Branson, and Future Journeys the Created Climate Wealth Australia Summit brought together global experts — corporate, financiers, entrepreneurs, and investors. They worked together to develop new income streams, create scale and limit risk for financiers, and generate the best wealth-creating ideas in Australia and the Asia-Pacific region.
The event focused around a two-day workshop included:
Energy Efficiency, Aviation & Renewable Fuels, Shipping & Freight, Distributed Generation, Capital Quest, Construction Innovation, Agriculture Food and Carbon.
Janine Cahill, CEO Future Journeys and co-presenter of Creating Climate Wealth Australia commented on the inaugural southern hemisphere event: “This really is the 21st Century opportunity: collaborating to co-create low-carbon economies across the globe. Future Journeys is very excited to bring Creating Climate Wealth to Australia and enlist corporations and entrepreneurs across the continent into the War Room”.
